Aloha from the big island of Hawai’i

Tim Carruthers and Jane Hawkey are visiting Kaloko-Honokohau National Historical Park located on the shore of west Hawai’i. Working with National Park Service managers and staff from the park and from the Pacific Island Network, we are drafting a natural resource condition report, using the NPS Rock Creek Natural Resource Condition Assessment report as a model. Since Hawaiian culture, historically and currently, has a strong connection with the natural environment, one task of this report is to include a cultural resource component.

This weekend, we travel to the other side of the island, to Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park, where starting next week, we introduce the park managers and staff to science communication IAN-style.
